After Gina wakes, and is forced to claw her way out of her grave,
she knows something is off. This is confirmed after she is greeted by
Bobby, a geek-turned-vampire, who tells her that she's a vampire, too.
One mistake on prom night, and she's now the undead. After being
abducted, she is a forced to live in a dorm setting with her other
classmates (who have also been vamped). That's when the trouble really
begins.

This book has been called "Clueless meets Buffy", and
it doesn't disappoint. Gina acts a lot like Cher, except less clueless,
and more undead. At first Gina seems like a typical "popular" teen
girl. She's a fashionista who concentrates on her looks (which is
pretty hard to do with no reflection). When it's necessary, however,
she is able to take control, and lead everyone against some of the less
savory characters (without giving too much away). That's why I
connected with her character. In high school I acted fairly immature
most of the time, but certain situations required me to take charge,
and act like an adult.

I loved that this vampire novel was
completely different from a lot of the other ones being published.
Instead of dark, angst-ridden vampires, there was a bubbly heroine.
Even the villains were fun in a love-to-hate way (well, except for a
certain psychic). I had a lot of fun reading it, which I can't say for
some of the "comedy" novels I've read in the past. Overall, I can't
wait for the sequel, and more Bobby!
